    If it's the very outside bulb, it's a counter clockwise turn. Only needs to turn less than a quater of a turn.

    I'm not sure how it is on his car, but my very outside bulbs, it's only a twist. All of the other larger bulbs have the "tab." But I'm not sure how much different our bulb set ups are.
